Apadmi increases headcount by almost 10% in past quarter

Leading technology consultancy Apadmi has announced the hire of 28 members of staff in the past quarter, including three apprenticeship placements, defying market instability in the current economic environment.

The 28 new starters add to the 62 hires that the technology firm has made in the past 12 months across its Engineering, People Team, Design, Business Development and Digital Product departments, as it continues in its expansion. 19 new starters in the past 12 months have been employed into its Manchester branch alone.

The news comes as Apadmi forecasts a 66 per cent growth for its current financial year, following a turnover of £11.8m for the 12 months to March 2022, attributed to the continued execution of its strategic expansion strategy, as well as a strong performance within its digital product offerings.

Former Google and Facebook lead, Stuart Lunn, who was appointed as UK Managing Director for Apadmi in June, commented,

“Over the past six months, we have identified substantial business needs across our team and the sheer amount of hires we have made is testament to our current and planned growth needs.”

“In Greater Manchester, we have a vested commitment to ongoing local recruitment and as one of the biggest digital employers in the region, we are very proud to be offering a range of roles and apprenticeships.”

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Manchester, Apadmi is the digital product partner for some of the world’s leading organisations including Domino’s, Co-op, NHS, BBC, Chelsea Football Club and Argos Financial Services.

Now employing over 200 staff across the Group, the company recently opened offices in Edinburgh and Utrecht, in addition to its Manchester and London facilities.

Lunn continued, “This level of employment in a very challenging economic period is one we’re very proud of and I am confident of our position as an integral part of the UK’s technology landscape.”

“Playing our part in establishing the North as one of the UK’s leading digital employment hubs is key for us, and we’re continually looking at methods and partnerships we can build on to support wider digital learning and employment chances, and to help offer those wanting a digital career a foot in the door.

“There is still much more to be done as a sector, but we are humbled to be hiring at this pace and to offer these opportunities to students and those switching careers.”

Apadmi anticipates an increase in headcount of approximately 75 hires over the next year, with further vacancies currently open across UX, UI, Front End Development and Client Services. Of these, four will open within its Edinburgh office.

It will open its graduate scheme in the next month, with a view to hiring over 20 graduates and undergraduates across engineering, product and testing departments.
